Is anyone having difficulty with cells staying on the slide during GMS
staining? There is no problem with AFB, Gram, Oil Red O, Giemsa.

This is only something that has become troublesome within the last
couple of months. Our hematology lab insists they have not changed any
part of the cytospin preparation, although some of the preps look
suspicious for poor preparation with uneven cellular/exudate
distribution on the slide.
